A mouse pad would be optimal for smoothness.

You'll find it's max, when you begin to see artifacts or in game, slowing down.

I overclocked it with nTune and here are the results of my 3DMark06 score.
I made a 2860
SM 2.0 Score- 1242
HDR/SM 3 Score- 1204
CPU Score 838.

Before overclocking my score was 2730.
Now will i notice any changes in my games, will i be able to increase any settings. The game i enjoy playing the most is Call of Juarez, im trying to find the best settings for it.

Nah...it won't do much for gaming. Just benchmarking.

Yes, you can overclock the CPU.

Just keep it below 60C. Any CPU can overclock, granted that the motherboard has overclocking options.

i just used ntune to tune my system for 20 minutes. It increased a couple stats. I then ran 3dmark06 and it dropped my scores my 900. Is that normal?

Krazy that computer looks fine. Just buy a mouse pad and see if that makes a difference. If that doesn't upgrade memory to 2gb.

My computers run any game on high settings just fine with no lag.

I ran 3dMark06 a few months back with my XFX 7600GT and got pretty similiar results with E6400 @ 3.2Ghz and 1GB DDR2-800 RAM. I can't remember my score off-hand but I know it was pretty close to what you got.

If you're not satisfied you'll probably have to just go out and buy a new card to be honest. I mean you CAN try and OC it, but I don't know how much that'll increase the performance (though I never tried OCing a GFX card before). That's something you might want to look into before you actually go out and buy a new card though.
